These replacement hood catches from Rugged Ridge was built as a strong direct replacement for the OE catches that degrade and fail after years of use. Installation is a breeze for any do-it-yourselfer with basic hand tools; the catches were designed to be a bolt-on solution using the same mounting points as the factory hardware. Includes mounting hardware. Available in black, stainless steel, and chrome finish.
I bought my latches about two years ago. Today one of the pins that holds the latch closed fell out while I was in the backcountry so I had one non functional latch for the road trip back. When I got home I checked the other side and it was loose and ready to pull apart. Check and tighten them up. Probably need lock tight. If I can’t find another pin I’m out more than $100. Maybe I should have replaced the rubber straps.
2.0Amazing latches but break easy.
These hood latches when installed are amazing they hold tight and are super easy to open your hood quickly.They are all aluminum design but the design uses plastic top retainer piece that holds the latch in place.After awhile this cheap plastic construction breaks and your latch is useless.If this product came with that latch in aluminum it would be indestructible.
First time I opened the hood after 4wp installed them, one of the latches broke. There’s a small plastic piece within the hinge that snapped. It appears to be working though and it’s too much hassle to order parts yet again.
5.0Easy install with my fenders
Use the OEM nuts with some tread lock. Looks good and feels safe after my passenger side catch tore.
